Weekend Things

Good morning and happy last day of August!  Can you even believe it?  This month went by way too fast and here I am again, dancing in that sad-summer-is-over-but-excited-that-fall-is-coming limbo, like I do every year around this time.  It’s a weird place to be, but what can you do?

By the way, do you dig the fresh look of the blog?!  I made a spontaneous theme change on Friday and I, for one, am loving it!  Please check out the new feature at the very bottom of the page where I tell you what’s on our meal plan for the week because I’m dorky and think that’s exciting enough to share.

In other news, non-Rockies related pieces of this weekend were quite blissful.  It might have something to do with that “Autumn is August” phenomenon, that allows me to live out both of my favorite seasons at once — fall by morning, summer by afternoon — or it might have been a combination of a burger dinner, time with friends, a painless training run, lavender, baking and the best soy chai latte that you ever had.
